Sample text

Let me get personal here. Now that I’m forty and still single, I see that I haven’t died of deferred hopes. Actually life is pretty good. I would still like to be married, but this hope doesn’t consume me the way it used to. I am trusting that when I get to see the big picture from heaven’s viewpoint, I will agree that God’s plan for my life was the best, that the years I spent single were worth it for the ways God used me. If being single means that God is using me to reach many unbelievers, I know I’m not going to stand in heaven and resent His decision!

I know I have been like Naomi. I’ve looked at my circumstances and concluded that God had “abandoned” me to unwanted singleness. I’ve actively complained about it. I’ve made snide remarks. I’ve been bitter when others have received the blessings I desire. I’ve even been outright angry with God for not answering my demands on my schedule. But I thought I’d grown out of it. Before that retreat, I honestly thought I was doing fairly well. What God 40 Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye? showed me then was a more subtle form of unbelief: When our prayers seem to go unheeded, we can learn to live in unexpectant apathy.

I’m not boasting in myself here. I’m boasting in the grace of God. He does provide the strength to keep doing the right thing even when all we want to do is pull the covers over our heads and never leave our beds! There is one memorable scene in the life of Jesus that I meditate upon often. ” This short verse is found in the account of the death of Lazarus. What’s stunning about the tears of Jesus is that He knew what was going to happen! Not only was He going to resurrect Lazarus in this age, but He was also going to the cross in order that Lazarus be resurrected at His second coming.
